Top 10 most inspiring quotes by Madeleine Albright
- A lot of people think international relations is like a game of chess. But it’s not a game of chess, where people sit quietly, thinking out their strategy, taking their time between moves. It’s more like a game of billiards, with a bunch of balls clustered together.
- No matter what message you are about to deliver somewhere, whether it is holding out a hand of friendship, or making clear that you disapprove of something, is the fact that the person sitting across the table is a human being, so the goal is to always establish common ground.
- I love being a woman and I was not one of these women who rose through professional life by wearing men’s clothes or looking masculine. I loved wearing bright colors and being who I am.
- It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.
- I have to tell you, my seven-year-old granddaughter said to my daughter, her mother, ‘So what’s the big deal about Grandma Maddy having been Secretary of State? Only girls are Secretaries of State.’ Most of her lifetime, it’s true. But at the time it really was a big deal.
- The magic of America is that we’re a free and open society with a mixed population. Part of our security is our freedom.
- I think women are really good at making friends and not good at networking. Men are good at networking and not necessarily making friends. That’s a gross generalization, but I think it holds in many ways.
- If you look at my life, generally, I’ve been put in situations which were difficult and which I conquered.
- There’s Madeleine, and then there’s ‘Madeleine Albright’. And I sometimes kind of think, who is this person? Once you become ‘Madeleine Albright’ it doesn’t go away.
- I am a beneficiary of the American people’s generosity, and I hope we can have comprehensive immigration legislation that allows this country to continue to be enriched by those who were not born here.
